NOVA Episode of Mir

Having just watched the PBS Nova episode of Mir, I promise not to gripe
about having the packet frequency change, or at times the digi not working.
It's amazing this thing is still in orbit and hasn't killed someone. After
watching, the video of the Progress ship striking Mir and the way the
cosmonauts managed to keep the thing in orbit, I think I'll just be thankful
it didn't crash from the sky onto my front yard. Seriously though, it was an
interesting show and I had no idea that there had been so many problems
aboard the Mir space station. Heck, it's all I can do to keep my car working
sometimes, I'm totally amazed of the cosmonauts abilities, with such a
minimal amount of "fix 'em up" items available.
